Welcome to Resilient Constructs, the blog with the pretentious name! This is one of my little corners of the Internet. It’s not the first and not likely to be the last. Here, my intention is to discuss and analyze current events–politics, economics, culture, science, and so forth. What makes me such an authority? Well, nothing, really. I just read and think a lot. If you don’t like what I have to say, I’m sure you can find something more to your liking elsewhere.
